Body Armor Standards
The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) rates body armor based on its ability to stop bullets. All bullets fired from all guns are not created equal nor do they perform the same way. Some bullets are designed to provide maximum expansion, while others are intended for deep penetration. In either case, velocity is a key element in determining expansion and penetration. What the NIJ has done is establish body armor threat levels by subjecting the armor to various projectiles.
The NIJ Standard on the Ballistic Resistance of Body Armor (NIJ Standard-0101.06) is an 89-page document that sets forth body armor testing protocol. More importantly, it establishes protection levels so consumers can determine the threat level they need or desire. There are four threat levels established by the NIJ. Threat Level 2A offers the least protection and Threat Level 4 the most. These levels also represent wearer comfort; Threat Level 4 is the least comfortable to wear and Threat Level 2A the most.
The ballistics table above shows the various loads that body armor must be capable of stopping to achieve a certain rating. What might surprise you is the bullets used in these tests are, in most cases, non-expanding full metal jacket bullets. While the most terminally destructive bullets are of the hollow point design, they are also the easiest bullets for body armor to stop. For soft body armor, the hardest bullet to stop is one of a small diameter going fast and will not deform on impact.
